Rory McIlroy’s record victory at the U.S. Open has boosted ticket sales for the British Open, according to Peter Dawson, chief executive officer of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews.
Less than a year after Augusta National Golf Club admitted its first female members, the subject of all-male clubs hosting major tournaments has resurfaced at the British Open.
Severiano Ballesteros , Europe’s most successful golfer, has died at his home in Pedrena, Spain, his family said. He was 54.
Golfers won’t be able to make strokes with a club anchored to their bodies under a proposal by the sport’s rulemakers sparked by changes in putting.
British Open organizers are honoring the memory of former champion Seve Ballesteros this week at Royal St. George’s.
"This is a very important and positive day in the history of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club."
